This was a great home! We did have a problem with lots of construction work on the home when we were there because they were tearing the roof off. It was pretty noisy and slightly dangerous walking outside. Vacasa took care of us though and made it right which was great. The house was wonderful though besides the construction. We would stay there again as long as the construction work is all done. 😂

We’ve stayed at a couple other homes in this neighborhood. We’ve enjoyed this one the most. Kitchen has all the basic amenities. The home also has ample beach chairs floaties, boogie boards, bicycles etc.

The location is beautiful, private. Water views from both the front and the back of the house. Right next to the pool. Doesnt sleep as many people as indicated but good and ample space.

Doctor’s Orders was the perfect fit for our family. Everyone had a great time. Steps away from the beautiful beach and pool. Clean and overall well stocked.

Great home. The owner would want to know that there is a leak from the roof in the master bedroom. After it rained, water dripped on the occupant's head.
Manager response:
Hello Elizabeth, thank you for the information. We have forwarded it to the local management to follow up on.

The house was absolutely perfect! It’s located right next to the pool and tennis courts and right across the street from the beach. The house had all of the essential needs. There was plenty of space for our whole family. Garage was perfect for storage and the elevator made loading and unloading so easy!

Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

This house was perfect for your family vacation! We had 4 generations together, 10 adults and 7 kids from 10 to 9months. We did use a couple of mattresses on the floor for the little boys. But the room off the master upstairs was perfect for that, with their own tv. We used the pool and were so grateful for the extras in the garage for the kids. The elevator was a surprise, but it was so handy with the loads of things we brought with us. With the full sized washer dryer, we were even able to leave for home with the laundry finished! WE LOVED GULF SHORES , BUT TO HAVE YOUR OWN BEACH, PRICELESS! We really hated to leave.
Thank you Vacasa and the owners of The Doctor's orders!

Wished my orders were for a longer stay. But it worked. I had family come into town to attend the “Celebration of Life” for the Love of my Life. And Doctors Orders gave me the perfect resting place as the events unfolded. We enjoyed the house so so very much. Relaxing in the jetted tub was just what the Doctor Ordered!! This home is absolutely inviting for grownups has well as the children. Thank you Doctor 🙏❤️🙏

This super nice house was great for my family. The pool and tennis courts are right next door. The beach access is right across the street. The neighborhood has a gate, which keeps traffic to a minimal. My daughter learned to ride her bike. The beach was not crowded. The house was clean and had everything we needed and more.

This is one of the best beach properties that I rented. Everything was flawless Check in to check out. We are looking forward to renting again.

I was so excited to find this house after being informed by another property manager that the home we booked would not be available (6 days prior to arrival). It was everything we could have hoped for and more. I real plus is the house has an elevator which was so helpful when bringing in luggage and groceries. Being next to the pool and across the street from the beach boardwalk was also great. There were a few maintenance issues which is to be expected after all the storms in the area. We called Vacasa and they sent an amazing workman named Vince who not only took care of our issues but was kind and concerned about our comfort. Vince is a major reason for the 5 star review.

The entire environment was beautiful....peaceful...clean...accommodating and very welcoming. The view was absolutely breath taking. Easy access to the beach and pool in an upscale neighborhood. The house was definitely the best choice I could have made for my family and will book again...!!!
Sam O. Jul 2020
Secluded area of Gulf Shores. Next to neighborhood pool and across private street from beach. Very easy beach access. Small plumbing problem 1st night, but they had someone out to fix next morning. I would recommend this property.
James P. Jul 2020
House was in a great location. Pool and beach very easy to access. House well equipped. House a little dated, but big and lots of space.
WILLIAM P. Jun 2020
Truly a perfectly appointed property for a serene beach getaway. Large gathering spaces, comfy and stylish furnishings, and lots of thoughtful, helpful beach accessories to borrow all contribute to make this a superb pick for an Alabama coast vacation. The private beach access and gated community location at the dead end of the beach road with long-range views into the amazing protected dunes area is unlike anything else along the Alabama gulf coast. We cannot express how surprisingly enjoyable this property was. Thanks for sharing it with us. Cheers!

I loved the size and location of this home. It was just outside of the main Gulf Shores area but still close enough to be in the heart of things in about 10 minutes. Walking on the uncrowded beach is a great way to start your day.
